Glen Matlock, one of the founding members and bassist of the iconic British band the Sex Pistols, co-penned many of the songs credited with starting the punk rock movement in Britain. Fighting against the bureaucracies of England in the 1970s, Matlock defined punk music with such songs as “Pretty Vacant”,” God Save the Queen” and “Anarchy in UK”.
Matlock has continued to define music playing in such bands as The Rich Kids, The Philistines and recently returned to the stage with the Sex Pistols. Glen has even expanded to DJ-ing using his musical expertise to gauge the mood of the audience.
Having jump-started an entire cultural shift through his music, words, and attitude, we we are thrilled that Glen has jumped in to join the Saatchi Online crusade of bringing the power of selling art to the artists themselves, taking it outside the structure of the traditional gallery structure.
Inspired by his favorites, Pollock, John Heartfield, Wyndham Lewis, and Jean Cocteau, Matlock curated a collection of his favorite Saatchi Online artists. Each piece, ranging from medium to medium, is bold, beautiful and in your face, exactly what we’d expect from a Sex Pistol.
